Skull Traction and Cervical Cord Injury: A New Approach to Improved Rehabilitation

Skull Traction and Cervical Cord Injury: A New Approach to Improved RehabilitationThis book is about surgical treatment of the sequelae of compressive spinal cord injury. It describes the deforming effects of this trauma on spinal cord tissue, especially on axially oriented nerve fibres, and shows how the intramedullary stress involved leads to overstretching or rupture of these fibres and consequent neurological deficit. The author proves that skull traction is similarly harmful and should therefore be excluded from therapy. Instead, he offers a new surgical method, cervicol…

Skull Traction and Cervical Cord Injury: A New Approach to Improved Rehabilitation

Skull Traction and Cervical Cord Injury: A New Approach to Improved RehabilitationIn this book on the optimal treatment of the injured spinal cord we present the reasons why we consider it necessary to handle trauma­ tized medullary tissue in accordance with the classical biological principles of wound healing in general, namely by long-term, ten­ sion-free immobilization of the spinal cord. Today, such immobili­ zation for this purpose can only be achieved by surgical secure­ ment of slight dorsiflexion of the cervical spine. Traumatically compressed medullary tissue is …
